  1. Mr. Gore, you always have awesome insights and write some great stuff. have to say those last words are the best. Just sublime pure truth beautifully said.
    Bravo!

  2. He sounds like a reformation era preacher, just, minus the credit to God. I’m very often amazed at the natural law principles being applied by what I have to assume are not Christians. I’m pretty sure the American church has been co-opted, there ain’t no other possible answer to it’s malaise. I have to search outside of God’s people for understanding of His creation. Scary times.

    • I can only hope the following answers some questions:

      “Seek ye His Kingdom and His Righteousness”

    • The modern church is definitely co-opted.

      They teach much more secular humanism and pop psychology than The Cross of Christ and Salvation thereby.

      They no longer believe the Word of God. They believe in works rather than Faith.

      The church world was invaded by marxists around the turn of the last century. Anyone interested should look into the Union Theological Seminary of that time and learn of the odious subornation that took place.

      Pacifism, worship of the state, institutionalized welfare, liberation theology and many another obvious social ill have been abetted from the pulpit.
      Idols of ideology and faith in Man have replaced Faith in The Cross and The Word of God who, one recalls, was pronounced dead back in the sixties.

      I could write reams on this subject. Even if you are not a believer, the history of the modern church is a mirror and one of the sources of our common devolution. The history of the church in the 1700s is as well:

      • I’m sure there will be detractors but the Reformed Presbyterian faith is carrying on the old ways. Historical, Biblical Christianity, the two Scriptural Sacraments, Baptism and the Lords Supper, Men in their roles as heads of households, protectors and providers, Women in their roles as helpmeets and Mothers. We know whose side we’re on and we know who the ultimate victor is. We have an eschatology of victory and urge you and encourage you to look further into it. The Orthodox Presbyterian Church seeks after the old pathways.

        • Best to simply believe the words on the pages of the old King James rather than denominational (man-centered) tradition. His Word makes clear, God does not operate denominationally (how can presbyterians, methodists, catholics, lutherans, calvinists, etc… all be correct in their beliefs, and they all believe they are, when they all differ theologically?): He does operate dispensationally.

          Example: At one point in time the Law was the method by which His people were to faithfully operate. All believers can agree on this… the 10 commandments and all.

          Romans 3:21… “But now the righteousness of God WITHOUT THE LAW is manifested, being witnessed by the law and the prophets;”

          But now; meaning, at this point in time, it (the operation of law principals to obtain Gods righteousness) is not. The words are easy to read but hard for most to believe. They denote a change in the ways in which God deals with mankind, a change in dispensations. It is at oughtsix states; today, it is grace through faith in the death, burial and resurrection of Christ alone as payment for ones inherent sin nature, imparted to those who trust in that alone, is a gift from God to man which cannot be earned in any way. Not through law keeping or through denominational church sacraments.

          When once it was fear of the law and its consequences which motivated a man, it is now the love of Christ demonstrated to us via the cross which ought to constrain us to act in the ways God would have us act (2 Cor 5:14-21).

          Denominational religious systems fail to distinguish the dispensational differences between Christs earthly ministry to and through the nation Israel, with His heavenly ministry given to Paul which created the unprophesied “new creature”, the body of Christ. With good intent likely in place, denominational systems still lead believers astray. New bible versions only increase the confusion because they alter the words to support denominational ways of thinking.

          As both the earth and heavens are fallen, both require a plan of redemption. The plan for the earth was prophesied since the world began. The plan for the heavens was kept secret since the world began. Contrast Acts 3:21 with Romans 16:25-26. The two are meant to be rightly divided, one from the other. Not combined, which is what leads to the multi-varied denominational ways of thinking that have fragmented the body almost completely.

          1 Tim 1:15-17… “This is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners; of whom I am chief. Howbeit for this cause I obtained mercy, THAT IN ME FIRST Jesus Christ might shew forth all longsuffering, FOR A PATTERN TO THEM WHICH SHOULD HEREAFTER BELIEVE on him to life everlasting. Now unto the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only wise God, be honour and glory for ever and ever. Amen.”

          Eph 3:2… “If ye have heard of the dispensation of the grace of God which is given me to you-ward:”

          Have you?

          1 Cor 11:1… “Be ye followers of me, even as I also am of Christ.”

          The Bible alone, rightly divided, ought to be the believers sole and final authority. Paul is the apostle appointed unto believers today.

          Romans 15:8… “Now I say that Jesus Christ was a minister of the circumcision (that would be the Jews) for the truth of God, to confirm the promises made unto the fathers: (Abraham, Issac, Jacob – Jews all)”

          Romans 15:15-16… “Nevertheless, brethren, I have written the more boldly unto you in some sort, as putting you in mind, because of the grace that is given to me of God, That I should be the minister of Jesus Christ to the Gentiles, ministering the gospel of God (1 Cor 15:1-4), that the offering up of the Gentiles might be acceptable, being sanctified by the Holy Ghost.”

      • outsix, I think it would be dilligent if Salt and Light Institute
        would read a little history; after all, the bible is about history.
        My reply above yours might shed some light.
        Language, and the portrayal and intent of words is key to
        understanding “hoss”🙂

    Thanks for sharing that Paul, will definitely check it out and
    pass it on to others.

    “Resistance begins with a moral precept, before strategy, tactics, and weapons. My life is mine. Only when you proudly insist on it, recognizing all that precept implies, will you be ready, willing, and able to fight for it with complete moral clarity.”

    Yes, that’s anarchy/voluntarism in a nutshell! I own myself just as
    other individuals own themselves. I do NOT own others, nor do I
    owe any obligation, debt or ‘duty’ to any ‘authority/gov’! I interact
    in a voluntary consent based format with other individuals and
    except for the issue/necessity of self-defense do not utilize, condone
    or agitate for aggression or coercion of other individuals that are
    not threatening me or my property. If others wish to interact with
    me on that basis that’s great, otherwise there’s no interaction
    (I reserve the right to disassociate with people I have nothing in
    common with morally, ethically or culturally).

    Those who ignorantly claim that “anarchy/voluntarism will never work
    in the real world”, only have to visit their local grocery or other store
    to see anarchistic principles actively in operation on a daily basis.
    No one makes anyone enter the store by force, they aren’t forced
    to choose one product over another, and one freely pays for what
    one decides to purchase from the store.

    When one imagines that they ‘need’ a leader, owes an ‘obligation’
    or ‘duty’ to ‘authority’ they hallucinate legitimacy into something that
    has never existed..a fictional entity called ‘gov’ and/or ‘authority’.
    When one stops imagining that they need a ‘leader’ and realize
    that they OWN themselves, they realize that ‘gov/authority’ has
    as much literal existence as unicorns farting skittles out their ass
    and even less legitimacy. gov/authority is the village bully striding
    around the town naked thinking he’s clothed like an emperor..nothing
    more!

    • Anarchy (the absence of gov’t) is the way most people live their lives everyday, but most fail to notice, having been brainwashed long ago.

      This is the only life I’ll ever own and it is mine to live as I see fit. No one else has any say in that at all, ever.

      If the rest of the world wants to turn criminal it can just leave me out of it.

      • “If the rest of the world wants to turn criminal it can just leave me out of it.”

        But they won’t and, by your lonesome, you cannot dissuade or resist them… successfully, that is.

        • Ahh oughtsix why even try…What I’ve never been able to get them to answer is when everyone gets to make their own set of rules who’s rules are right and who gets to determine that…In other words who determines what is an infringement on Rightful Liberty and who gets to decide on the type of punishment and the severity…Their line of thinking brings a constant state of war and blood feuds…Now don’t get me wrong I think what we have now isn’t working and needs a lot of tweaking but I’m not for throwing the baby out with the bathwater…

          • Those who reject anarchy imagine anarchists advocate a society with no structure or rules, a war of all against all. This is not so. The question is, how does the structure come about? Is it imposed or is it via voluntary agreement?

            Anarchy does not mean no rules, it means no rulers. And even that is not a universal, since anarchy would necessarily be embedded within a panarchist society; there will always be those who want a ruler, and anarchists cannot keep them from having one.

            Most people do not understand how close to anarchy America was (particularly on the frontier) in the early days. Any government was small and distant. Tocqueville noted how Americans utilized voluntary associations for every task imaginable. Yet the frontier society was safer than any big city today.

            • Still didn’t answer my question Paul…Who decides…And your assumption that the frontier was safer is just that, an assumption… Lot of unmarked graves out there that were never recorded…
