Human government is a joke, and a bad one at that. Try and try as he might, “man” almost inevitably screws it up. Will human government ever get it right?Hellfire Drone

This, by the way, is hardly a new state of affairs. King David wrote about it long ago:

“Why do the nations rage and the peoples plot in vain? The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD and against his Anointed, saying, “Let us burst their bonds apart and cast away their cords from us.” He who sits in the heavens laughs; the Lord holds them in derision.” – Psalms 2:1-4 Read more

Wow, what will “they” think of next? Now the federal government plans to tax Christmas trees!

A New Tax on Christmas Trees?

Did you ever study Greek mythology when you were in school? If so, you may remember Sisyphus.

Aren’t governments a universal “fact of life” in our world? What do you suppose it might be about politics that makes it such a despised topic? Read more

Hey, Who’s in charge here anyway?

We say we believe the Bible. We say “Jesus is LORD.” We say a lot of things, but do we really mean them? Do we actually live and think as if they are so? Read more

Government, hand and glove complicit with the leadership of the “average church,” has fixed into the mind of the typical pew-sitter a completely undeserved awe, an ill-begotten respect, a woefully overboard reverence for anything and everything government does or says.

What makes human government so special? Why do we fawn and fuss over presidents, governors, “leaders” of all stripes? Are these not the “rich and famous” overlords who make our lives miserable, the very people who oppress us? Read more
