The Grey Point

Tired of the idiocy that is the fake left-right conflict? Let's face it. The Neocons are knee jerk reactionary nuts using counterfeit Christianity as a basis for their agendas and Liberals are bleeding heart, over emotional, tree hugging, UN loving hypocrites. The Independent Party are water carriers for the Republicans, and the enviromentalists are funded by big government. It's time to speak the truth. It's time to enter THE GREY POINT.

Relations of Despotism, Gun Control

Hello, brothers and sisters, welcome to another edition of The Grey Point. This, of course, is extremely late. I'm writing this on a Friday night, but I'm sure the post wil say that it's Saturday. I've had too many things to do, and not enough time to write anything. That's why my book, "illuminated", is getting off to a very slow and rough start. Premature writer's block and hardly much time on my hands equates into little to no headway on either of my blogs. Unfortunately, I won't make multiple posts, but I will try to put all that I can into this edition.

Some quick notes before we begin. My mother is out of the hospital, so all of those that can, please pray for her. Also, visit http://www.komen.org/. I beg that you become more aware in the dangers of breast cancer, and that both women and men have equal chances to get it. Early awareness can save lives more than you could ever imagine. If only my mother had went in sooner, she wouldn't have been in such a bad condition. One more note, before we continue, is that I'm writing a "futuristic" book based on my studies of the globalist agenda. The book is a work of fiction, but was made to represent what could happen if corrupt politicians and the roughly 1% of the richest population has their way with not just our country, not just this continent, but the entire world. You can find it at http://illuminatedthebook.blogspot.com/. Keep in mind, however, that it won't be updated as quickly or as much as this blog, due to it being a blog novel and not just a simple blog like this.

Okay, first, I'm going to touch up on an issue that I've soon realized about forms of government like fascism, communism, despotism, socialism, etc. The one common thread that they have, is that none of these forms of government really matter. They're all just variations on that one common concept: Control. Absolute, dictatorial, tyrannical control. Whether you have a Communistic form of government, or a one-man style of despotism, it's all the same. They're simply just ways to control the poor, defenseless, blindly patriotic. freedomless, dumbed down people. Does that sound familiar? America is starting to become just that, folks. Hitler turned his people into blindly patriotic, dumbed down, robotic zombies after he set one of his own buildings, the Reichstag, on fire and then blamed it on his political enemies. Martial law ensued, and Hitler had the people of Germany like putty in the palm of his hands. America is turning into that same dictatorship police state. Exploitning 9/11, the Bush administration is turning this government into a Hell hole where liberties and freedoms are void. We're seeing that with the Patriot Act, the National ID Bill, and many others. It's vital to remind you that Bush graduated from Yale as a Skull and Bones member. Skull and Bones, admittedly, came from various German secret societies including the Thule Society, who had Hitler as one of its members. Don't believe me? http://www.cephasministry.com/nwothule.html. Anyways, I'm digressing into other territory. What I'm saying is, whatever label you want to give a tyrannical government, the same thing is evident. The people are powerless, and the tiny minority who control them have all of the power. Unfortunately, our country's government has degraded from a Constitutional Republic into a Democracy. This means that majority rules. After all, Hitler gained the trust of his people by acting like a good Catholic man. And the Roman Catholic church backed the Nazis without even as much as a flinch.

The next issue in my line of sights is gun control. We'll start in Biblical terms. Most people thought that Christ taught pascifism, and those that teach this use Matthew 5:38-39 to prove this. "You have heard that it was said, 'An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth.' But I tell you not to resist an evil person. But whoever slaps you on your right cheek, turn the other to him also." What they forget, however, is that Chris was specifically talking about civil magistrate, as opposed to self-defence. This is evident, because the Bible teaches that self-defense, and defending one's property and loved ones is a highly honorable thing to do, on top of a God given task. In the same Sermon, Jesus says "Whoever therefore breaks one of the commandments, and teaches men so, shall be called least in the kingdom of heaven..." (Matthew 5:19). So, it's made pretty clear that Jesus wasn't teaching something different about self-defense than that which is taught in the Bible. Otherwise, He would be teaching about breaking His own commandment, and therefore contradicting Himself. Even more apparent is that the "eye for an eye" statement was in regard to Exodus 21:24-25, which deals with the magistrate dealing with crimes.

Exodus 22:2-3 says: "If the thief is found breaking in, and he is struck so that he dies, there shall be no guilt for his bloodshed. If the sun has risen on him, there shall be guilt for his bloodshed. He should make full restitution; if he has nothing, then he shall be sold for his theft." One conclusion from this would be to deal with a threat to our life with force, lethal if need be. "A righteous man who falters before the wicked is like a murky spring and a polluted well." (Proverbs 25:26), so, surely, we would be faltering to the wicked if we remained unarmed and undefended, without the ability to defend ourselves and others from a life threat. Basically, we have no right to give up our lives, one of the most beautiful and best gifts given to us by God Himself, to somebody who is unrighteous and wicked. Civilized society, and a society in which good people let evil people walk over them in submission, are two seperate things indeed. But don't think that having a gun is doubting God's power over us! John 14:15 talks about how if we love Him, we will keep His commandments. Truly then, those who love God will follow what 1 Timothy 5:8 tells us. "But if anyone does not provide for his own, and especially for those of his household, he has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever." If you don't work, and expect to be fed, you're defying God. In Psalm 46:1 it is written that God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. This, however, did not conflict with our praise to the one true God "Who trains my hands for war and my fingers for battle" (Psalm 144:1). We, as the Bible shows, must train, prepare, and work, but it is vital to trust any and all outcomes to God. Those who trust God, will prepare themselves to defend and provide for his family. Those who do not, are defying God.

In the end, God didn't ask for registers on rocks and background checks on those wanting to buy ploughs. As Charlton Heston so masterfully put it, "guns don't kill people, people kill people". Restrictions on guns, background checks, and draconian gun control laws will do absolutely nothing to lessen crime anywhere. They will simply keep guns from those who need them, and will do nothing at all in keeping guns away from those who don't need them, namely criminals. Cain killed his brother in jealousy. Not because he had a rock available and it just seemed like the right thing to do. Much is the same for the man who shoots another in defense of his own life, or the life of a loved one. It is our moral, Christian, God given duty to defend ourselves and those we love. Those who wish to do harm on us, will have their reward beyond the grave. But those who die in the defense of a life will have their own reward, and the Bible clearly shows that. A gun is only as bad or as good as the person holding it.
