Making A Stand


There’s a country song (No, not a country fan) that says, “You’ve got to stand for something, or you’ll fall for anything.” The events of the last year in general, and the last 2 weeks, tell me that it’s time to revisit that idea.

As our country continues to call anyone who criticizes the government a terrorist and threatens legal action against those utilizing their First Amendment right to petition their government for the redress of grievances, I have some hard questions for you. Questions that you need to ask yourself and decide where you stand. Yes, I said stand, which requires getting off the couch.

But first, before everyone starts trying to tell me what Jesus said, let’s go over some Tactical Wisdom:

Do not assume that I came to bring Peace to the earth.

I did not come to bring peace, but I came to bring a sword.

Matthew 10:34

So, let’s dispense with that misconception that Christians are required to timid, peaceful beings, shall we? In fact, tonight Christians in Serbia took offense at an LGBTQ parade that mocked the Crucifixion and are violently opposing it. AS THEY SHOULD.

Making a stand on principles WORKS. When we as a collective expressed our outrage that a liberal prosecutor charged a bodega employee with murder for defending himself, they withdrew the charges. It matters.

The FBI and the DOJ have intimidated people into not making a stand. So much so, that now, everyone says, “Don’t take the bait” and “Don’t say anything”. Sorry, y’all, that’s dead wrong, especially when you look at the teachings of a carpenter who lived 2000 years ago. Are you willing to actually speak up, based on your principles?

On that note, I recently made a stand very publicly. I was castigated immediately; being told I was “policing speech” and “denying truth”. Then I got a string of DM’s & emails saying that I should apologize publicly (FOR OPPOSING THE USE OF A RACIAL SLUR), I should keep my views to myself, and people spouting mis-quoted Scripture at me.

Here is what the Bible says about my actions:

Declare these things; exhort and rebuke with all authority. Let no one disregard you.

Titus 2:15

Listen: If you make a stand on principles, and you then waver, YOU DON’T ACTUALLY HAVE PRINCIPLES. It’s as simple as that.

Now, this article isn’t about me, I just used this as an example. If you value your freedom of speech, but then keep quiet out of fear of the FBI, you don’t really value your freedom of speech. You value your comfortable life more. The same thing goes for your freedom of assembly – if the FBI has scared you into NOT meeting others and NOT making your voice heard, then you don’t really stand on principle. The men who founded this country didn’t shut up. They didn’t worry about their jobs. Do you worry more about your job than about preserving our way of life?

Jesus was wrongfully imprisoned and killed – by the government I might add. Paul was also repeatedly arrested and eventually killed by the government because HE REFUSED TO WAVER. Paul was told repeatedly that all he had to do to end his suffering was deny Christ and walk back his principles. He refused, even unto his death. I think we can all agree that their sacrifices in the short term improved the world in the long term.

The point to take away here is that we have PRINICPLES. We should stand on them and never waver. People are hosting drag shows with strippers dancing in front of the youth of this nation, and we’re too afraid to do anything about it. That’s BY DESIGN. They WANT you too afraid to speak against them.

Rescue those being led away to death;

hold back those staggering toward slaughter.

Proverbs 24:11

That’s a pretty clear command.

We know that this is wrong, yet we do nothing to oppose it, other than to send snarky tweets. I’ve got bad news; this problem isn’t going to be solved on Twitter.

Ok, but what does this have to do with preparedness? I’m glad you asked. It has EVERYTHING to do with preparedness.

As we continue down this road, a stand on principles is going to be REQUIRED at some point. We need to be prepared to get out and actually make that stand. That means being prepared to risk your income, by being financially prepared. It means having enough food to get through a winter of food scarcity, while the government denies assistance to “domestic extremists” who disagree. It means having alternative communications platforms to help you communicate outside of methods that are heavily monitored (like radio). Have you taken care of these things?

Decide what principles truly matter to you. Then prepare to stand on them, in a way in which no one can force your compliance, short of actual force. We’re always saying “don’t take the bait and make them act” on us, I say make our voices be heard and make THEM afraid to act on us, as the Framers intended (calm down, Feds, I mean the First Amendment, not the Second).

If anyone, then, knows the good they ought to do and doesn’t do it, it is sin for them.

James 4:17

We know what we ought to do – so do it.

As for those who felt the need to tell me how and when I should stand up for my principles – I leave you with some wisdom from Nathaniel of The Last of the Mohican:

Do what you want with your own scalp and don’t be telling me what I ought to do with mine.

We will get back to discussing the Mobile Lifestyle in the next 2 days.

  1. Isaiah 32:5The vile person shall be no more called liberal, nor the churl said to be bountiful. 6For the vile person will speak villany, and his heart will work iniquity, to practise hypocrisy, and to utter error against the LORD, to make empty the soul of the hungry, and he will cause the drink of the thirsty to fail. 7The instruments also of the churl are evil: he deviseth wicked devices to destroy the poor with lying words, even when the needy speaketh right. 8But the liberal deviseth liberal things; and by liberal things shall he stand.

  2. Hey Joe: I was watching & even tried to remind dude in da chat that all peoples commit evil and us Mexicans ain’t collective saints. A malignant heart is a result of allowing evil to infiltrate one’s heart, not the result of ethnicity. But trying to explain the source of evil to someone who thinks they’re inherently good is a fool’s game. Only the Holy Spirit effectively convicts the receptive of the evil within them to the extent of repentance. But that doesn’t mean the Spirit can’t work out of our mouths when we call that out. I’m convinced what you did and said was pleasing to God. But I wish I heard what you were saying initially, however, you muted yourself. LOL!!
