Roundup That Matters

I have not done a Roundup in quite some time because my hope was to increase my writing with a little more depth. While the depth of some of my posts increased, I think my overall depth decreased, because my writing did. Yet, there are things that I want to comment upon, and share with you. So, back to the Roundup That Matters. I only have two for this morning, but both are worth pondering.

Thomas Sowell shows that slavery is not the reason blacks have so many problems today. He quotes from Frederick Douglas:

Back in the 19th century Frederick Douglass saw the dangers from well-meaning whites. He said: “Everybody has asked the question, ‘What shall we do with the Negro?’ I have had but one answer from the beginning. Do nothing with us! Your doing with us has already played the mischief with us.” Amen.

Sowell has worthy statistics to back up his claims.

NOTE: The following proved to be false. Read about it here.

Judge sentences pastor to one year in jail for refusing to perform gay wedding. We knew this would not take long. We need to pray for Pastor Paul Horner, that he remains faithful to the truth, even to the point of suffering for Christ if he is sent to jail. This case, by the way, is another glaring example of why you cannot compromise with Democrat liberals. The moment you do, they take another mile. It also shows that they were lying when they said they JUST wanted marriage equality. They do not. They want gay conformity, and anyone who refuses the new religion will be punished beyond the law.

I can’t tell you how much this upsets me. We knew it was coming because the same happened in Canada. Whenever sexual rights supersedes human rights, such as the freedom of religion guaranteed in the Constitution, is the moment that all other rights are removed. A right is not a right if it forces someone else to set aside their rights, and this is exactly what the un-Constitutional ruling by the Supreme Court did. The invented a right out of thin air, that sets aside the rights guaranteed by the Constitution.  The only way this will stop is when we start running these judges who do so out of the country, or worse. But as long as we sit by and take no action at all, we are guilty of complying with a wicked and harsh government (Please read comments section regarding this last statement, especially Stan’s statement).

    Praying for pastor in jail here in America for speaking the truth of the WORD. May pastor’s fear GOD more than man. Also, I think Thomas Sowell is so wise. Glad to receive a Roundup that Matters !!

  2. “As long as we sit by and take no action at all, we are guilty of complying with a wicked and harsh government.”

    Timothy, I’m with you when you say it upsets you. I’m heart-sick over it. This will not go well for our First Amendment rights. That having been said, I’m not sure about this statement. Jesus took no action to eliminate the Roman government or even the local religious rulers. Instead He told them, “Render to Caesar what is Caesar’s.” Peter didn’t try to run the Sanhedrin out of office. He simply said, “Whether it is right in the sight of God to listen to you rather than to God, you must judge.” Paul didn’t work to change slavery laws. Instead he said, “Let every person be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those that exist have been instituted by God.” And we are promised, “All who desire to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will be persecuted.”

    America will face its just rewards, but I’m not sure it is the task of American Christians to overthrow the current government to enforce Christian values. No, let me change that. I’m sure it is not our task.

    1. Hi Stan, yes, that is probably the more biblical perspective. There is a movement afoot here in Tennessee that is seeking to claim the south as their country, and we’ve really been trying to ponder how or if we should be involved. This helps.

    2. There is one problem with your perspective, and that is that we live in a nation that was founded on the concept of self-government. Thus, it is our duty to rule ourselves and that means taking some kind of action to thwart the forces of the dark side. Writing letters to editors, politicians, CALLING politicians or visiting their local offices, VOTING and generally opposing that which is clearly bad for the nation is part of the price of citizenship under the “American experiment”. The lack of participation by those who should know better is the primary reason we are where we are.

      Thus, even greater participation is now required to right the ship. Remember Burke and what he said about good men doing nothing.
