How did the common activity of associating with others and engaging in these associations by another common and vital activity of moving your body on the common roads using an AUTO-mobile become a crime in America? The answer is not the evil empire exploiting and manipulating the people to surrender their liberty to self-govern. No. The highest answer is immodest and immature Christians standing spiritually naked, refusing to be clothed in the King's armor to stand against evil, alá Ephesians 6.
When I returned from three years living in Japan in 2016, my Oregon Driver's license expired. Did I make an appointment with the bureaucratic DMV or DOT to renew my driver's license upon return to America? Nope. Protected with the King’s belt of truth, the breastplate of righteousness, shoes of peace, the shield of faith, and the sword of the Spirit, I was not compelled to renew my driver's license after cutting all the strings of modern entanglements as a faithful soldier of Jesus Christ. Instead, I decided to perfect the warrior spirit of living a carefree, burden-removing life like my Lord and Master.
Having since 1996 meditated on what makes America a virtuous and, therefore, a free country, I knew that the people's character makes the country's character. If America is free, then the people must be free. It's a cause-and-effect relationship.
If I don't have the freedom to do something as mundane yet vital as move my body on common roads without asking permission from strangers, then America is no longer the land of the free nor home of the brave. America is not a light to the enslaved world—she also succumbs to modern-day slavery.
Where are the men and women of virtue? Where are the embassadors of freedom? Where are the men and women who are disciples of Jesus Christ? He commanded, "Go...make disciples of all the nations.…”
When the King says, "Go...," He possesses all authority. He did not limit His command that His disciples ask permission to obey Him. Doing so is to submit to a competing authority with America's unseen King and utter disobedience.
Where are the men who exercise dangerously brave actions in the authority of the King?
This leadership post is a significant update to how I've been perfecting the government of Jesus Christ in associating with others when traversing the common roads. This update contains three newspaper articles below about my loyalty to the King in my county paper, The Lancaster Patriot. Let these news articles serve as an instrument of hope, healing, and inspiration that the Spirit of Liberty is being resurrected to displace and destroy the evils of socialism, Marxism, and communism today.
In other words, in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, and by extension, all of America, liberty is the law to govern yourself. Obey law that never changes so that you will have a clear conscience of not being of those who said, “Lord, Lord…” but were rebuffed, “Depart from Me, I never knew you, you who practice lawlessness.”
If you are not born spiritually, but claim your duty to self-govern by the Declaration of 1776, then you are free externally to associate with others using the common roads.
But, suppose you are a born-again disciple of the Lord Jesus Christ. The law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus is self-control. Against this law—there is no law under heaven forbidding you to control yourself in whatever you do and wherever you, “Go, therefore….” As King Solomon warned, “Life under the sun is vanity.” But life under the eternal Son is utter victory in this cosmic war because the heavens do rule.
"The Governor and all other civil officers shall be liable to impeachment for any misbehavior in office, but judgement in such cases shall not extend further than to removal from office and disqualification to hold any office of trust or profit under this Commonwealth.
An ongoing freedom to travel battle between a local family man and government officials continued with the issuance of an arrest warrant last month. Lancaster County resident Barry Durmaz received a Final Notice of Arrest Warrant stemming from violations of Pennsylvania's Vehicle Code. The notice was signed by Lancaster County Sheriff Christopher Leppler and dated April 3.
What battles are worth fighting? Should you wear the mask? Take the shot? Bake the cake? In many ways, the questions are often very personal. And from the Christian perspective, the issue of conscience also plays a key factor.
