The glue that has held our great Republic together these many years is our Rule of Law. And I would argue that “Due Process” is both benefactor and beneficiary of our Rule of Law. Due Process both provides the appeal of consistency, fairness, and integrity to the whole of society, and benefits as a part of the whole it provides for. One cannot consider “the law” in a society founded on the rock of Judeo-Christian values without hearkening back to its source in the compilation of decrees found in the first five books of the Bible. When the law was transgressed, the covenant was broken, as was the relationship with God.
The sacrificial blood of sheep and goats were the means of restoring the relationship between God and Old Testament man. But, as we Christians know, the blood of the Old Testament sacrifice did not remove our iniquity, it was more like a fresh coat of paint to cover up our transgression still attached to our corporeal and temporal being…think of it as the parasitic alien that attached itself to its first victim in the horror movie Alien. Isaiah foretold of the one who would come as the sacrificial lamb to remove the parasite of all sin from us, to be “laid on him” in our stead.
All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to (man’s) own way…
So, we can observe and contemplate the affairs of men before and after the life and death and life of Jesus Christ. Before Christ, “the law” was bent and shaped by men to control men using the fires of the Temple to their purpose. God became man in Jesus Christ to restore “the law” and expose the Pharisees and build His Church. If you observe the modern-day Pharisees of the Catholic Church and listen carefully to their conversations, you will hear the same pre-Christ plotters plotting their control…in league with the satanic forces behind the New World Order. In the same day, our official “representatives” in Washington have made themselves kings and queens to rule over us, our representatives in the Church discuss the “Due Process” of kicking the same old rusty can down the same old dusty road. We are exactly in the same hour on the same fence of the time before He came the last time…
What is not of God, is of the devil. Every sentient being has/needs religion. Most secularists I know are “Progressive”…they worship Gaia/Earth/Climate and 10-yr-old drag queens. The NY Governor who once invited Traditional/Conservative New Yorkers like myself to leave NY, now vows to “lead the nation with a Progressive agenda.” We are all in the same play. The Secularist “acts” an evolving role, according to their whim as director and producer. We “are” as directed and produced by God.
The first half of Isaiah 53:6 is the extreme consequence of rejecting “the law” for “his own way”, otherwise known as anarchy. The Globalist/Pharisees and our Founders were on the same page in rejecting anarchy as a system of governance because it is by definition social disorder. And then they quickly parted ways as the former applied “their law” by their authority top-down. The latter, on the other hand, applied “the law” by our authority bottom-up (subsidiarity). Unfortunately, as President Trump is revealing to us every single day, the latter has become an illusion BECAUSE we allowed our representatives to become kings and queens…and ourselves to become serfs living off the crumbs from what has become their table…or perhaps more accurately, China’s table.
As long as “the law” remains the illusion replaced by “their law”, due process will remain the illusion replaced by “their process”. Anyone who deludes themselves to believe that Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump were afforded the same “due process” by “the law” not only delude themselves…they (intentionally or otherwise) relinquish their own right to due process.
“NOW therefore, listen to me, my children, for blessed are those who keep my ways. Hear instruction and be wise. And do not disdain it. Blessed is the man who listens to me, watching daily at my gates, waiting at the posts of my doors. For whoever finds me finds life, and obtains favor from the Lord. But he who sins against me wrongs his own soul; All those who hate me love death.” ~ Proverbs 8:32-36
This is a great spiritual and political overview of things. It is a good place to begin a discussion with those you might want to start a dialogue with. This starts to ask, (who, what, where and how) we got on the road of our current problems.. It just might peek some interest for those who still have an open or uneducated mind to pursue and delve more into the important thoughts you bring up! It just might spur people to join together and begin to change things. Thank you.
We can only hope my friend.
