  • Aww, I liked your other avatar better! :p
    Thanks for following. Always nice to see people interested in what I have to say, even if it doesn't tend to be much. (y)
    Taking this here, because one it would be thread spam, and two people might find it interesting if they stumble onto it. But did you know that Thomas Paine brings up the exact same thing in his book Common Sense he actually uses this to argue that Republics are more godly than kingdoms.

    I guess I need to read common sense again, but i'm inclined to agree. Just because the bible used a lot of "fudalist" language doesin't mean that such an eartly kingdom was "godly" just one people sadly understood due to carnal nature. In fact as we've seen in Kings such a kingdom was heavily rebuked.

    This is not my area of expertise sadly, I probably should read the bible to understand Christians and then probably follow up with the Torah for Jews, and so on. But I can still get the idea, I think, is that in Judaism and Christianity god is supposed to be the only real king.

    God and Jesus are our true kings, the fact that those of us who claim to be his followers are so quick to be willing to accept Phisical imitations and subsitutions because we don't feel like God is acting fast enough, is not just sad, i'd argue with scripture it is borderline blasphamy. Though we are given some idea of what a godly government as God's form of ideal government has remained fairly consistant, a council of elders/wisemen that handles public cases in keeping with God's word while the smaller disputes are handled by the people whom the dispute is with. I would say that in terms of a sliding scale a republic is more godly then that of an absolute monarch or dictatorship though I will say that his main concern is that people follow him above all else.
    If the dead could speak, we'd all fear for our lives.

    And if the dead could vote, all places would be like Chicago.

    Now I’m wondering what they’d say?

    I know that includes people from all across history, but if I were to guess what the generation who lived through (and died in) the Depression or the World Wars would think… my guess is that they’re begging us to hit the brakes and turn back before it’s too late. We’ll regret not heeding that advice later, I fear. :(
