The Idea of 95 Theses
The Protestant Reformation (1517) is said to have changed the face of Western
Civilization. It began when Martin Luther posted "95 Theses" on Justification by
Faith on the door of the Wittemburg Church (the conventional method of inaugurating public
debate on an important subject).
I hereby inaugurate debate on a subject which I humbly believe has the power to change
the face of Western Civilization.
The Failure of the 95 Theses
Early in his career, Luther spoke loudly and clearly against
usurers those who live off others by loaning them money in their time of need and
charging them interest. Luther clearly had Scripture on his side, but when faced with
political pressure, capitulated, and chose to remain silent in the face of those charging
interest. Calvin followed a similar
The Reformers and the Roman Catholics were both challenged by the Anabaptists of the 16th century, who engaged in
illegal Home Bible-studies, and based on those studies concluded that society would be
better off without a "State" or institutional "church." Some of these
"radicals" argued that society could only be just if it were patterned after the
"Mosaic Law" of the Old Testament (a view which sounds remarkably like that of
the modern "Christian Reconstructionists"). Calvin, trained as a Roman Law
lawyer, repudiated this view, calling it "stupid and false,"
and thereby unleashed human autonomy in the name of "public equity." [*]
Civilization really changed very little. In fact, an argument can be made that
"the Protestant Reformation" in many respects hastened the Bush-Clinton
"New World Order."
Pure Religion - Purified Society
The name "Puritans" reflects a desire to purify religion, and produce a Godly society. The Puritans believed this could
only be accomplished by reconstructing religion and society according to the blueprints of the Bible.
Well, not "only." The Puritans also revered the "classic" works of
Greco-Roman scholarship. In addition to Moses and Isaiah, the Puritans listened to Plato
and Seneca. The "Founding Fathers" wrote their revolutionary propaganda under
Greek and Roman pseudonyms and patterned their monuments after pagan temples in Greece and
Rome. Once again reformation was stillborn. Today, "Christian patriots" worry
about "preserving the Republic" instead of "building the Kingdom."
What will it take to achieve radical Christian reconstruction of society?
The Goal of This Debate: Non-Privatized Religion
Some people say all religions lead to God. Others disagree, claiming they alone are
God's "chosen people." Jesus said, "I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to
the Father except through Me" (John 14:6). But there is a social side to "true
religion." From a Christian perspective, two things characterize pure religion. They
can be summed up in the words of the Apostle James:
Pure religion and undefiled before God and
the Father is this,
To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and
to keep himself unspotted from the world.
I want to be a part of the "one true religion." I want to be the kind of
person who spontaneously, and from the heart, has the compassion of Jesus, and visits the
weak and afflicted.
My success at treating the weakest members of society with love and compassion is a
divine indicator of my allegiance to the Lord Jesus Christ. If I treat the
"marginalized" with contempt those acts will be imputed to my account as though
I had personally treated Christ that way (Matthew 25:31ff.).
But the modern world has convinced me that Christian traits like
"forgiveness" and "compassion" are
"unrealistic," "impractical," or "idealistic" and can have no part in
public life, which depends on vengeance, coercion, and intimidation.
"Religion" must be kept "private."
For this reason, it is absolutely vital that I remain "unspotted" by
the agenda, mythology, and weltänschauüng of the world. The
world-and-life view of our culture is summed up in these phrases:
- "Survival of the fittest,"
- "Looking out for number one,"
- "I'm not going to let him get away with that!"
- "You can't tell me what to do!"
- "Take this job and shove it!"
- "I'll sue his pants off."
- "Killing the innocent is in the interests of our 'national
It is an impure religion of the worship of self, and the denial of God. It is the
refusal to love even our enemy, and to follow Jesus to the Cross. It is the religion of
Secular Humanism. As a product of government schools, this religion has left my spirit
spotted and impure. I must get these ideas out of my head if I am to find myself at
Christ's right hand (Matthew 25:34). I must become "unspotted."
My desire in posting these "95 Theses" is also to help others be people of
"We have no king but Caesar!"
- This incredible confession was made by the religious leaders who sought the execution of
- Their religion was not the religion of Abraham.
- They worshiped at the altar of the idolatrous Humanism of Rome.
- The Polis of Rome was not the
City of God.
But tragically, Judaistic religion and Roman law both infiltrated the followers of
Jesus, true sons of Abraham.
Our history books tell us little of the history of decentralized Celtic Christianity,
only of the centralized "Roman Catholic Church," a hybrid of Roman law and
Shocked at this admission, there are many today who have assumed the task of ridding
the world of what they call the "Zionist Occupation Government" But
assassinating all the "conspirators" is not the answer; how many people who
complain about "Jewish Bankers" rush like
suckling pigs to these same bankers to obtain "instant gratification" for
their material lusts, and then pay the bankers hundreds of thousands of dollars in
interest over the course of a lifetime. If one set of "conspirators" were wiped
out, millions of people would rise up and demand that they be replaced with a new
set. Most Americans, including those who feel they have been "educated"
concerning the "conspiracy," also worship at the altar of Zionist-Roman
Law Humanism. The only thing that will rid the world of this government is to rid the
world of those who prop it up. Is that you, dear reader? Does a "new creation"
await the death of your old nature, and your present
I would like to humbly suggest that what is needed in our day is a "paradigm
The Structure of Cultural Revolutions
Fifteen years ago I read through the entire Bible, cover-to-cover, three times, in one
year. It created in me what scientists call a "paradigm
shift." It completely altered the way I look at the world,
myself, the future, even the Bible and God Himself. I concluded that there was no way to
justify Biblically the religion of materialistic Humanism, which virtually all
institutional churches accept, and especially the institutionalization of the violent
worship of self which we call "the State." And I also concluded that one of the
most poisonous beliefs regnant today is the belief that we should all just sit around and
wait for the Messiah to come a second time and rescue us all. I experienced a
"paradigm shift" in my thinking about Church, State, and Prophecy. I would like you to
experience that same transformation.

B. Hope for the Future: Rethinking Prophecy
The religious leaders of Jesus' day did not have pure religion. Neither do their
descendants. The murderous Caesars of Jesus' day certainly did not have pure religion,
although, as Paul says, they were very religious (Acts 17:22). The great monuments in
Washington D.C. are modeled after the palaces and temples of these pagan dictators. Church
and State claim to be "separate," but these powerful institutions are in bed
with each other. And most Americans are the illegitimate offspring of this Zionist-Roman
Our picture of a Godly society has been colored by this cultural hybridism. We need to
return to a pure paradigm, as set forth in the Bible. When I experienced my "paradigm
shift" I realized that the Bible is at war with the Church-State hybrid we all think
is so wonderful. I realized that the society which Abraham worked for was not dominated by
priests or caesars. I guess what I'm saying is that by really reading the Bible I became
Please bear with me. The label "anarchist" brings up images of bomb-throwing
assassins and libertines. I am totally, unequivocally opposed
to violence and lawlessness. But from my reading of the Bible, the rise of lawlessness
and violence is usually caused by the State. Therefore, to be a true opponent of
crime, violence, and lawlessness, one must be a true opponent of the institution founded
on the Zionist-Romanist hybrid.
Rethinking the State
"The Divine Right of Kings" was a paradigm that once dominated Western
Civilization. It wasn't quick and easy, but that way of looking at things was replaced.
The U.S. Constitution of 1789 set forth a new paradigm: a concept of governing the people
"by the people," and ostensibly "for the people." But 200 years later,
this concept of "constitutional government"
has also proven to be a failure. We do not, by any standard, have a well-governed society.
We are a socialist nation with an increasingly violent, lawless, and immoral people. The
election of Bill Clinton and the years-long failure to
impeach him is proof that the Founders' paradigm
The Frightening Violence of the State
One horrifying fact that drives me to "anarchism" is the conclusion of Prof. R.J. Rummel, who has spent decades
studying and documenting the terrors of secular empires like the Soviet Union and Red
China. Nearly 200 million murders have taken place in the 20th Century - all of them
committed by the State. More astonishing, the murders Rummel documents are
murders committed by the State against its "own" people. How many
millions of "enemies" have been killed in countless wars designed to expand or
to buttress political power? Not counting abortions, Statistically speaking, I think it
safe to say that the governments of the world have precipitated the murder
of 10,000 people each and every day of the year throughout this past century. If we add the number of murders of pre-born people to this list, the
murder rate as I write is nearly 10,000 people per hour. These murders are all
"legal." Mothers have a right to kill their children, we are told,
and all of us have a "right to die."
In this new 21st century, the Secular Humanist State is
planning to enforce that "right" an additional 15,000 times per hour.
In other words, most of the killings that have taken place in this, the most violent
and secular century in human history, have not been committed by those lawless
"anarchists" and criminals from which the State is supposed to protect us. Most
of the violence in this century has been either approved or ordered by the State.
This is the State that justifies its existence by its claim to "protect" its
We are all taught that the State's power is legitimate, that when someone does
something "we" don't like, it is morally legitimate to destroy "them"
and their entire village. Have the street gangs of the 1990's learned a subtle lesson?
If we are going to obey God's clear command to "Rescue those who are being taken
away to death" (Proverbs 24;11) we must at least deny the moral legitimacy of
those who are doing, approving, and ordering, incomprehensible numbers of killings. The
State is organized vengeance; institutionalized murder.
This is a controversial proposition. Like Luther, I post these Theses for public
debate. I believe I can defend them Biblically.
Statistics for theft are as incomprehensible as those for murder. I personally
believe that Government "monetization of debt" is theft; the
Bible plainly condemns it. Trillions of dollars of debt have been
thus fraudulently "monetized." The figure is so large and incomprehensible that
we have lost sight of how evil it all is.
Some people say taxation is theft. I agree. As I read through the Bible from cover to
cover, I found that nowhere does The Bible give any man the right to take the money of
another by the barrel of a gun; just because the Bible says we are to
pay taxes and not "resist evil" does not suddenly make evil acts morally
upright. Taxation is an act of violence, an act of conquest,
"the power to destroy," as members of the United States Supreme Court have
Acts of nationalization are surely theft. Every act of socialism is an act of theft,
and there is no government in the world today (nor can there be) that is not socialist in
some degree. How many billions - trillions - of dollars have been stolen by
"organized government?" More than by all "organized crime," and all
disorganized "criminals" put together.
Destruction of property by war and bureaucratic regulation have also resulted in untold
billions of dollars of damage. All the anarchists in the world could never have wreaked
such havoc. But when the State does it, it is cloaked with the mantle of moral legitimacy
or "public necessity."
The State is inherently Darwinian. It is institutionalized violence. It is the
organized attempt to avoid having to follow Jesus to the Cross. The State was formed by
people who believed in those slogans of secularism and materialism
(above). Lord Acton has rightly observed, "Power corrupts." This
means that even if Christians hold political office, they are holding the keys to a
kingdom of violence and vengeance, not suffering and compassion.
If they have "pure religion," it will be corrupted by the moral approval of the
power to steal, kill, and destroy.
In short, the governments of the world claim moral legitimacy for protecting us from
criminal acts, and yet the State is incomparably more evil and violent than
"private sector" criminals. Governments threaten the world with nuclear
annihilation, something even the largest mafia cannot do. And all governments in the 20th
century, so far as I know, must be classified as hostile to Biblical
Christianity: no private criminal enterprise ever succeeded in removing prayer, Bible
reading, and even the Ten Commandments from the
schools of tens of millions of children. (Now those lawless,
Christless public school students are inheriting the reigns of power. Their parents
financed their Humanist university education, and now they finance their political reign.
The future looks grim.)
Based on these facts, I have concluded that it's time Christians re-think the whole
idea of the State. What I attempt to demonstrate in these 95 Theses from the
pages of the Bible is that the concept of a State is a Humanistic, not a Biblical,
idea. I believe that if we are going to get to the Kingdom, we must repudiate
"patriotism" and embrace a Biblical social order, even if some would call it
I believe it is time to move to an explicitly Biblical paradigm, one which is
Patriarchy: A Paradigm so Old it Appears New
Aristotle was wrong: man is not "a political animal," he is a familial
being. In the Bible, the Family is the basic institution of human society. Man is created
in a Family, not a State. Setting up a State is clearly depicted as an act of
faithlessness or rebellion. God created human beings to be born in families. Strong
families are to assist weaker, broken homes. In the Bible, the State is denounced from
cover to cover.
The technical term for a family-centered society without a civil government is "Patriarchy." This is clearly the form of social order prescribed by
the Bible. If the Bible does not repudiate all politics, then the
Bible has no meaning at all.
The only paradigm that will preserve Christian character in our
nation and ultimately our world is the Biblical paradigm, and that is Patriarchy. It is the absence of institutionalized government and the presence
of self-sacrificing families of deep, moral character.
Before radical social change can be put into effect, proposals for such must be heard
and evaluated. As it is now, we are not able
to "hear" the Bible's call for personal repentance and cultural
reconstruction because of the mythology of institutionalized violence. Far more than
previous generations, Christians today are content to let a secular State direct their
lives and thoughts and educate their children. We must destroy the myth that the State has
a moral right to exist. Only then will men be open to the call to follow Jesus, rather
than seeking power over others; taking personal responsibility rather than
"delegating" it to socialistic "elected representatives."
Patriarchy means we honor our elders, serve our brothers, and
adopt the fatherless.
God wants parents to teach these values to their children. God wants children to honor
and obey their parents even when their parents are statists and humanists. By submitting
to Darwinist evil rather than taking vengeance, and by following Biblical principles
regardless of the personal cost, we develop the character of Christ, and God blesses our
obedience with social order, peace, and prosperity. It starts in the home. The first step
in global Christian Reconstruction is to denounce violence, repent of our vengeance, and
repudiate the world, that is, the State
The Myth of Anarchism
This is not "anarchism." This is
"Patriarchy." My desire is to see global obedience to every jot and tittle of
God's Law, in practical ways that will mend the torn fabric of life. My desire is to
reduce lawlessness and violence, and to restore "pure religion." There is no such thing as "anarchism."
In 1982, after experiencing my "paradigm shift," I sat down with my Bible at
the kitchen table to write out 95 Theses (following Martin Luther) to reform our thinking
on politics. I simply went through my trusty KJV and compiled a catalog of all the verses
on politics that I had underlined during my cover-to-cover readings (I had color-coded
them). These Theses are the result. They run counter to everything we've ever been taught
about Christianity and Politics.
|Does God affirmatively want human beings to form a "State?" The
Bible says No. There is no doubt that God
"ordained" the State; Romans 13 teaches that. As a "5-point
Calvinist," I believe that everything
is ordained by God.
But that is not the question.
|The question is, Is the State "elect" or "reprobate?"
The lives and eternal destinies of all human beings are "ordained" by God, and
all men are either "elect" or "reprobate." The State is also
"ordained" by God: the question is, is the State a "vessel of wrath"
or a "vessel of mercy?"
You don't have to be a 5-point Calvinist to be able to answer this
question correctly. Is the Mafia "ordained by God?" NO. Is prostitution a
"divine institution?" The answer is clearly NO, but the Bible says that God
is sovereign over both. Judas was to use the language of Romans 13
"ordained" to betray Christ. He "served" God's purposes as
God's "minister." But woe to him! (Luke 22:22)
By using the word "powers" (exousiai) to describe the State ("the
powers that be"), we are alerted to its demonic nature. We
are to wrestle with the powers that be, not wave their flags (Ephesians 6:12). The
State represents works of darkness which must be destroyed by the power of the Gospel.
The State is unquestionably "ordained" by God. In some sense God
"wanted" Satan to harass Job, kill off his family, and destroy Job's property.
If we turn to God when we suffer, rather than resist violently, returning evil for evil,
we develop the Character of Christ. Only in that sense can it be said that God
"wants" a State. Satan did not have an obedient, God-honoring heart when he
"Stalinized" Job. But Satan's evil worked together as all things do
for the glory of God. This is clearly the message of Romans 12-13.
But even though they are "ordained" by God, those who form political
structures are disobeying God's Law, whether they call their enterprise a
"democracy," "republic," "oligarchy," "monarchy,"
or whatever. They are rebelling against the requirements of God to develop Christlike
character, work productively, and teach the children.
As long as Christians believe the myth that the State and its ways have moral
legitimacy, they will be tempted to ignore the widow and the fatherless, and we will not
have "true religion." If we in the 20th century do not learn any lessons from
history, the 21st century will be filled with even more horrifying levels of violence;
widespread destruction and genocide
we cannot now imagine. As long as we believe that violence is legitimate when the
perpetrator is wearing the badge and uniform of the State, we will be tempted in
economically difficult times to get a job with the State, putting our neighbors
and even our own family on the trains headed for the "detention
centers." ("It's just a job.")
My purpose in publishing these 95 Theses is to destroy that myth; to show that the
State has no moral legitimacy and must be abolished.
Rethinking the Church: A Failed Institution
We live in the most violent century in several millennia, but most "pastors"
never mention that fact. They never challenge us to repudiate the myths of conquest which
are perpetuated by the State, to their great profit. The "pastors" do not
challenge us to remain "unspotted" from the Babylonian/Roman world around us.
The Bible clearly repudiates this ideological failure, as well as the priestly caste
which uses liturgical smoke and mirrors to cover the stench of death. Abraham did not
depend on priests and pastors to create social order. He obeyed God's Law in his
household. The only priest Abraham depended on was Melchizedek: both a Priest with no
"Apostolic Succession," and a King Who pointed to a Government remarkably unlike
the empires of the day (Isaiah 9:6). He was a type of Christ, not a Judaistic-Romanist
caste of celibate priests. If you can't see the failure of human priesthood in the pages
of the Bible, you just aren't reading the Bible.
The institutional church is the handmaiden of the State. Jesus put an end to all human
priesthood and religious hypocrisy. The institutional church must go the way of the State;
it must be abandoned.
Sounds grim doesn't it? The failure of all our most cherished institutions. If we can't
trust politicians and clergymen for the salvation of the social order, who can we trust?
Hope for the Future: Rethinking Prophecy
The Puritans and their heirs, the "Christian Reconstructionists," seek to
remake society. Perhaps the biggest obstacle to reconstruction is the belief that all work
in this age is doomed to failure; that nothing lasting and wonderful can take place until
Jesus returns again. Some expect Jesus to rule from Jerusalem, and oversee animal
sacrifices in a re-built temple. Others simply expect Jesus to give us all new bodies and
arm us with iron rods to beat the pagans up. Both groups lack a fiery resolve to transform
the earth into God's Garden-Temple. They long for "something" in the next age,
or beyond the grave. Reconstruction is delayed; evil advances; sanctification is
Ask yourself, what did Jesus
come to accomplish? The redemption of priests and politicians alone? No, He came to
make us all sons of Abraham. Godly men of leadership
and cultural healing.
This redemption does not await a future "Second Coming." The Scriptures
plainly declare that Jesus triumphed over the Old World Order at His First Advent, and
history is now moving toward something New. On another webpage I call this "The Christmas Conspiracy." It begins with us,
in our lifetime. This New social paradigm leads us to a transformation of our view of the
future and of our study of "last things," eschatology.
Domination vs. Pietism
The acceptance of an optimistic eschatology (whether "post-mil" or
"preterist" ["consistent" or "partial,"]) is obstructed by a
confusion of "dominion" and "domination"; a tension between social
action and fascism; between a zealous, aggressive social involvement, and the destruction
of "unalienable rights" by a "theocratic dictatorship." It is true
that some who advocate "Christian reconstruction" believe that a Godly society
will come about simply by executing all the bad guys, rather than by eliminating
institutions which model violence and vengeance for criminals to imitate.
In addition, many "pre-mils" or "pessimillennialists" fear that
"dominion theology" goes against the Biblical concept of "suffering,"
"persecution," and "taking up the Cross," and seeks to "make Him
a king" (John 6:15). In a sense they are right. 1 Peter 2:18ff. commands us to follow
Jesus "in His steps," steps which led to the Capitol not to assume the
power to put enemies to death, but to be put to death. Gentile kings are "archists," not Christ's
servant-followers (Mark 10:42-45). How does this picture square with current attempts by
"Reconstructionists" to assume the reigns of political power?
The Patriarchy paradigm resolves this tension by affirming Patriarchy over Politics,
the importance of personal obedience to God's Law in its patriarchal setting. The Biblical
image of the destruction of "the elements of the world" is not a prophecy of a
future nuclear annihilation, but a description of Jesus' victory over the Jewish-Roman
hybrid, the "principles of the old world." Our work for a
decentralized, family-centered society is accomplished by following Jesus to the Cross,
not by buttressing the power of the Secular Humanist Empire in the name of "strong
national defense," "law and order," or "cleaning up America." The
Spirit uses little acts of obedient sacrifice, day by day, to build the Kingdom. The
Spirit does not use the World Bank and military socialism to build the
Kingdom. We eschew violent revolution, "submit" to the Empire, and wait for
Jesus to destroy it from Heaven.
The Kingdom Jesus established is described by the "Vine & Fig Tree" imagery of swords beat into
A different concept of the "millennium";
a manly and victorious strategy for reconstruction;
an optimistic view of the present age.
I invite you to "search the Scriptures" (Acts 17:11) and
see for yourself that we must repent of our statist idolatry, our ecclesiastical toadyism,
and our historical/social escapism, and be willing to follow Jesus.
I am confident that if you read through all these Theses and look up all the Bible
references you will find yourself saying, "Hmm, I guess the Bible really does
require Christians to be anarchists." Soon you will be a Patriarch. Soon you will be
95 Theses for the 21st Century
The Bible contains an infallibly recorded
history of the human race. That history begins with the creation of man in a state of
Family-centered society, functioning freely and prosperously, with no "State"
and no "church." From this Edenic life, man rebelled against God and fell into politics
Today our ideas (and the theories of the "experts") are dominated by
institutionalism. We cannot imagine a decentralized society of self-governing Christians,
productively meeting the needs of others. Those who, like the Anabaptists of the 16th century, suggest that
society would be better off without a "State" or institutional
"church" are dismissed as "anarchists."
They can be dismissed no longer.
Not just because America's "State" is rapidly degenerating into a
"Feminazi-ocracy," joining forces with pagan dictators and threatening to
envelop the world in global tyranny.
Not just because the institutional "church" has proved utterly irrelevant
in stopping our cultural and moral collapse.
But because - from cover to cover - the Bible advocates
Beginning in Genesis and continuing to the book of Revelation, the
following 95 Theses are drawn out of the pages of Scripture and are set out as a challenge
to the violence, corruption, immorality, and autonomy of Secular Humanism, in the
"State" and in the "church."
"Society without a State?!?"
"Stop attending church?!?"
"He's not coming soon?"
Sounds absolutely off the wall, doesn't it? I would have thought so too, before my
paradigm-shifting read through the Bible.
How to Use the 95 Theses
If you believe the Scriptures really are the Word of God, read one thesis a day,
looking up each of the Scripture references, and in three months your life will be
radically altered. Even if you don't agree with every one of these Theses, your
understanding of the Bible will forever be changed. You will be transformed from a son of
Darwin to a son of Abraham.
Use of the term "Zionist-Roman" should not be interpreted
as "anti-Semitism." This is not a racist or "white supremacist" issue.
"Semites" are descendants of Noah's son Shem. The problem is not with these
descendants. The problem is with the Secular Humanist religion practiced by descendants of
all of Noah's sons. Secular Humanism is practiced by Jews,
Catholics, Protestants, and Supreme Court Justices. [use "back" button to return

cheek" does not make cheek-slappers a "divine institution." Christians are
to submit to evil-doers, including the State. [Back to Text]

Humanists seek to be "archists"
in the place of Christ, and that His followers are to repudiate their legitimacy and
follow Christ alone (Mark 10:42-45). If Christians are not called "anarchists" by Secular Humanist caesars, then they
are doing something wrong.

abuse. It stems from the recognition that human beings are familial beings (industrialist
cloning to the contrary notwithstanding), and that sexual differentiation is real.

(9) Technically there is no
such thing as "anarchy." If the word is taken to mean "the absence of a
ruler [or "archist"]" then there is never a case where there is such a void
- as long as human beings are involved. If a human repudiates the rule of God he becomes
his own god. If he repudiates the rule of a "government" he becomes his own
government. Someone is always an "archist." "Anarchy" is not a
possible condition of human existence because we are created in the Image of God, the
Ultimate Archist. We are either archists "under God," or rogue archists. There
is no other "archy"; no "an-archy." There is no escaping the option: Theonomy or autonomy. [Back
(10) I would be deeply appreciative of your comments and feedback.
I believe that you have some degree of responsibility to correct me if I am wrong, because
the Bible says that if you see your brother stumbling, you should help restore him. If you
would like to confirm my character to ensure than I am teachable and you would not be
wasting your time correcting my errors, you may contact Prof. John M. Frame at the
Westminster Theological Seminary, 1724 Bear Valley Pkwy, Escondido, CA 92027. He and I are
not in 100% agreement on these Theses. [Back to Text]
I do not use the word "suffering" in the same way it
is used by pietists and other "wimps." The strongest and most courageous people
in the world are those who "suffer" at the hands of Zionist-Romanist
persecutors. The true wimps are those who want their VCR and designer jeans so badly that
they make deals with the Occupation Government to keep their personal peace and affluence.
They are willing to keep silent and walk in line. Read Hebrews 11 for a catalog of those
who were willing to suffer. [Back to Text]
