There is one golden key to protecting our freedom.
You are completely right on! Rights come from God. It is a major reason the Big Brother types are trying to eradicate God/religion. Early Marxists found that God/religion and family ties prevented many people from embracing their philosophy of collectivism controlled from the top. This time, they want to get those things out of the way. That rights come from God - our very being comes from God, whether or not one sees God as an entity independent from us - and governments attempting to take our liberty and our right to choose from us are robbery at our expense.
I also agree that no cause whatsoever can be valid if it encourages people to submit to centralized control. However, that climate change is a hoax I do not buy. Simply looking around can show that our Earth, our only physical home, has been polluted violated, and bullied by the notion that people create better than God and that technology and convenience are triumphant, having overcome Nature and the world that God created (from either viewpoint, harm has been done.) The solution is not to control and mandate everyone (which will only make things worse) but to open our eyes and quit whatever we are doing that harms the Earth and its denizens. There are plenty of people who are voluntarily trying to cooperate with the Earth, and these people are also under the guns of Big Brother. They are the permaculture homesteaders, the regenerative farmers, those attempting to restore the rainforest and protect it from destruction, those who protect our public, people-owned wild areas from avid miners and loggers and others who would take over these places for self-profit, at the expense of the people and other Earth denizens who benefit from wild areas. These are not those who would tyrannize us. The tyrants are those in the government who want to empower the destroyers, ignoring the ordinary people they hope are destined to become slaves. So, I completely reject those who have "captured" the awareness that we have not been kind to Earth and who wish to mandate for profit and control, but do acknowledge that a free change of minds, hearts and awareness is needed if we wish to continue with any nurturing wild areas left. May God help us.

This is going to sound way too negative but I believe the human species is done for! Done for by itself, not by some external evil entity but by the evil that has taken root and grown in each and every one of us. Taken root but stays hidden in many while in still many others it roars out blatantly. I feel the few that fight against it have to fight for their own souls; they cannot fight for the souls of others. One can point out where the road lies or the direction to take but those others have to travel that road themselves, they cannot hitch a ride back for that journey back is their life learning!, their understanding of how their took the wrong road and their salvation lies in realizing their wrongdoing, repenting and returning. How many do we see falling on their knees and repenting when just about each and everyone of us needs to get down and repent. How many of us can do so when the first sin most of us suffer from is the making of Money our God! We feel so much pleasure and peace seeing a nice fat bank balance than we feel in seeing a fat Bible. The next sin would be lust and who is free of this sin? Who can be. With time and age this sin declines but then when are we going to pay for the sins of our earlier years; can they be swept aside and forgotten as if they never happened. It's tough to fight the good fight when the good fight does not need others to be defeated but only the evil within them to be defeated while they should be shown love. Love thy enemies Our Lord said somewhere in the Bible. Can We? I Can't. I don't even know what such love means and there are no answers from the pulpits that can explain such concepts. Preach about them yes, explain with practical examples, no!
Yes, I do get the feeling we are fighting a losing battle for the tipping point has been reached!
This is one of the most well-written articles I've read from you, and I completely agree. I just don't know what hope there is for secular Western societies like Canada, Australia, and New Zealand who have largely dismissed the existence of a creator.
Well said!!! People forgot about God and the 10 commandments as if they don’t exist. I hope we can change our thinking and once again learn to pray.
