Standing on Principles

Uthred Making a Stand

If you watched The Last Kingdom, you know about Uthred Ragnarson. Uthred was trusted by both the Saxons and the Northmen, because they both knew him to be a man of principles and a man of his word. Once Uthred swore an oath, you could consider it done. In fact, the only time he went against his brother Ragnar was because his principles meant more to him than family, and he couldn’t allow a woman (Princess Aethelflaed) to be harmed by men lacking principles.

You may be wondering what this has to do with anything, but bear with me….

The only time Uthred directly betrayed King Alfred was when the good King pushed him too far and demanded too much. The King kept altering his agreement with Uthred and Uthred’s men to the point that Uthred would take no more. Sound familiar?

The same day that the new Disinformation Governance Board, or “DGB” (KGB), was formed with a radical partisan at its helm, I was reading in Isaiah. Almost immediately, this piece of Tactical Wisdom was thrown in my face:

Woe to those who make unjust laws,
to those who issue oppressive decrees

Isaiah 10:1

Make no mistake, establishing the DGB within a law enforcement agency was an oppressive decree.

Around here, I get asked almost daily, “When is someone going to do something?”. I myself frequently remind everyone of Patrick Henry’s famous speech (delivered in a church, I might add). On that same day, while pondering all of this, this came to me from the Ultimate Tactical Handbook as well:

If you do not stand firm in your faith,
    you will not stand at all

Isaiah 7:9b

What does my faith tell me? It tells me that I am never to deny Christ’s existence, yet I am continually told that we may have to in this country, and that while I’m at it, I will also have to apologize for believing in Him, because some time in history, someone did something bad in His name. Standing firm means I will not. I must not.

Another Favorite:

A narrative is spreading that Christianity is a risk of extremism. The same people pushing that nonsense are also claiming that Russia’s invasion of Ukraine is some type of Christian Crusade, and therefore evil. That’s utter nonsense, but it is spreading.

We were forced to stop going to church for a year, and those who stood firm in their faith were arrested and charged. Many Christians, speaking out against what appears to be growing authoritarianism in the US, have been threatened with arrest or actually arrested. We were told in the Bible that we would face persecution for following Jesus and The Way, and here we are. What advice was given in the Bible for when that happens? Was the Bible wisdom “Sit back down and keep quiet” or “Go along to get along”? No. It was this Tactical Wisdom:

So then, those who suffer according to God’s Will should commit themselves to their faithful Creator and continue to do good.

1 Peter 4:19

But we aren’t. We are meekly watching this nation and the world hurtle towards disaster.

The stock market is crashing. Food supplies are dwindling and appear to be intentionally being hampered. Supply chains are broken. The US Defense Department is emptying the armories as fast as it can to arm Ukraine, while we can’t re-arm to protect our own nation. All of this while actual evil groups are spreading civil disorder and rioting across the nation, almost completely unopposed by the police.

What can, NO, what SHOULD we do?

As people of principle, we need to stand up and say NO MORE. If only some do, those ones will be crushed by the increasingly oppressive government. If we all do, we can turn the tide.

If we continue down this course and things come completely off the rails, I urge those of us into preparedness to retain our principles and rebuild under those principles, which happen to be enshrined in our Bill of Rights, Constitution, and Declaration of Independence. These documents were inspired by God, and the Founding Fathers said that right in them.

Fans, I’m no Patrick Henry, but I say this: With a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, I pledge to you my Life, my Fortune and my sacred Honor. I know not what course others may take, but as for me, give me liberty or give me death.

Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?”

And I said, “Here am I. Send me!”

Isaiah 6:8

  1. What is it with Christians, being *by far* the majority religion in this country, trying to always act like they’re back in the 2nd century being persecuted and kill by the Romans?

    One of my favorite founding fathers is John Adams, who signed the Treaty of Tripoli, which contains a very important phrase: “the Government of the United States of America is not, in any sense, founded on the Christian religion”.


  2. So when are Christians going to stop virtue signaling about “muh principles” and start fighitng? I dont give a darn about “muh tactical prowess,” if you arent willing to use it.
    Conservatives are cowards. Maybe highly armed. That just makes them highly armed cowards.
    The left is openly grooming children. But that isnt enough for virture signaling cowards of the right to stop their make work jobs and go fight. conservatives opine they are too busy working accumulating chinese made chattels and their credit score.
    Conservatives are cowards.
