How Freedom is Lost …

First they convince you that freedom is impractical.

“It’s nice in theory, but not realistic.”

Then they convince you that freedom is insensitive.

“I love liberty too, but I also love people.”

Then they convince you that freedom is immoral.

“You’re being selfish by putting your individual rights before this person’s pain.”

Then they convince you to sacrifice your freedom on the altar of the greater good.

“Give us the power to legislate your behavior and dictate your decisions. We promise to use that power in a way that benefits everyone. You can trust us. We know what’s best.”

Then they destroy the world and pin the blame on you.

“This would’ve never happened had you given up your freedoms earlier. It’s your fault for being so selfish.”

And the cycle is repeated from age to age with each new generation being duped into believing that authoritarianism was the sort of thing that could only go wrong during more primitive times.

As long as there are people in the world who want to control, and think they have the right to, there will be this. So, how do the rest of us teach them NO.

That is our only path, but I am afraid the male eunuchs in our country prefer slavery.

The problem is the human heart. Jeremiah 17:9:says the the human heart is deceitful above all else and desperately wicked, who can know it. The Bible has predicted these days over 2000 years ago. There is no hope for humanity apart from saving faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. He says He is the resurrection and the Life. Whoever believes in Him will never die. Act accordingly!

God is a God of army’s, not just spiritual but flesh and blood. He prepares my hands and fingers for battle, I will act accordingly.

“Amazing and terrible things are committed in this land: prophets prophesy lies, and priests dominate through them” (Jer 5:30–31).
“The shepherds became meaningless and did not seek the Lord, and therefore they acted recklessly, and their whole flock was scattered” (Jer. 10:21).
“Many shepherds spoiled My vineyard, trampled down My plot with their feet; My beloved site was made an empty steppe; they made it a desert ”(Jer. 12:10–11).

The american sheeple have been dumbed down, the so called men have been turned into eunuchs. Over the long decades of their push of tyranny they have won every battle, with little or no resistance. The patriot act was designed to control and monitor the American citizen. It is funny what we can accept as so called security at the loss of our freedoms. Most people who have fled the communist state will tell you it is almost impossible to get your freedom back once they are in control. We have lost our country without a shot being fired.
