Two Masters Update: Feb. 19th, 2012Posted: February 18, 2012 | |
This topic is written with the belief that people still have the choice of which master they will serve. The rebellious streak in human nature wants to be free of any authority higher than itself. That is a philosophical and spiritual impossibility, as I will demonstrate. Most people respond to the principles that I express in these posts with; “Oh all that old Bible stuff doesn’t apply to people today! Times have changed. We’re so much more modern than dirt farmers and illiterate herdsmen.” Are we really so advanced that there are no limits on behavior? The evidence of the news each day say that humanity hasn’t changed a bit, in 6,000 years.
One of the concepts that was raised today was the terms and conditions of debt and slavery, judgment and restitution, finally resulting in resolution and closure. Most people believe that the law is whatever you attorney can help you get away with. That may work for a little season, but not forever.
Deu 24:10 When thou dost lend thy brother any thing, thou shalt not go into his house to fetch his pledge.
Deu 24:11 Thou shalt stand abroad, and the man to whom thou dost lend shall bring out the pledge abroad unto thee.
Deu 24:12 And if the man be poor, thou shalt not sleep with his pledge:
There is much that is romanticized in the concept of majority rule. The fairy tale understanding is that the will of the majority is the right thing to do. There are circumstances that clearly contradict and reprove that notion. If 51 people decide that’s it’s a good idea to seize liberty and property from the other 49, the majority calls it good and right. This is the way that corporations legally steal money from their investors. MF Global does deceitfully by t5heir investors, failing to perform the terms of the agreement. The investors have little or no opportunity to recover their funds. JP Morgan bought the assets of MF Global, for pennies on the dollar. The legal system has withheld judgment, the “law” has called the transgression good and right.
The foreclosure fraud issue is an even bigger miscarriage of justice. By the recent $26 Billion settlement agreement, the banks escape making full restitution. The banks walk away from their obligation, paying less than 1/1,000th of the total amount of damages. Clearly, the legal system has been negligent in it’s fiduciary duty, to protect the people from unjust monetary and real property damages. To this point, the majority has been consenting in this institutionalized theft.
By the standards established by the Creator, there is a lot wrong with these perversionms of justice. People believe that whatever they can negotiate, whatever they can get away with, is honorable and equitable. That is not so. When men create their own law, they are lawless. Do people have enough common sense to see and understand that, or do they have to find that out, after they are passed out of this world?
