"If you believe what you like in the Gospel, and reject what you don't like, it is not the Gospel you believe, but yourself."
—St. Augustine

Disciple: Christian



Calling yourself a Christian means something. Jesus is our King. We are part of His Kingdom.

King-dom: Christ is King, and we are His domain

Identity: Who Am I?



In Christ I am...

I am Clean
All of my sins have been pardoned through Jesus' blood. I am cleansed from my sins and the sins others made against me.

"If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness." 1 John 1:9

I am Chosen

Socialism: Are free services really free?



Free education, free health care, steal from the rich and give to me. Free, Free, Free!!

Would FREE Education really be free?
- would teachers teach for free?
- would maintenance workers work for free?
- would land owners give land for free and developers build schools for free?

NO, of course not. So be honest, what are you really asking for?

Aren't you really asking, out of jealousy, for the government to steal what you covet from those that have more than you to give to you in the form of free education?

Do not be fooled by the false hope and idolatry of socialism!

Declaration of Independence

IN CONGRESS, July 4, 1776.

The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America,

When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

Independence Day



The American colonies were once ruled by a bad King, much like God warned Samuel about when we trust in and depend on earthly kings instead of God:

“’This is what the king who will reign over you will do: He will take your sons. . . He will take your daughters. . . He will take the best [of everything you have]. . . and you yourselves will become his slaves.’”
- Paraphrase of 1 Samuel 8:7, 11-18

02 Self Defense



The Right, Duty, and Responsibility of Self Defense

"Do not unsheath me without reason. Do not wield me without valor."
- unknown

"Guarding human life against imminent and unjust violence, as Augustine would argue with his principles of Just War, is a created duty. It is part of loving your neighbor. And while Paul teaches in Romans 13 that the governing authorities 'do not bear the sword for nothing,' the governing authorities are not always on hand when the wicked strike."

Militia
The militia was before the constitution. There are four places in the American Constitution that affirm the Militia's prior existence, and no law can alter it. The militia is all able bodied members of a community.

Marriage: "Strong families, prosperous states"



Confirming God's design for marriage:
Strong families, prosperous states: Do healthy families affect the wealth of states?

Economics has its roots in the Greek word oikonomia, which means the “management of the household.” Yet economists across the ideological spectrum have paid little attention to the links between household family structure and the macroeconomic outcomes of nations, states, and societies. This is a major oversight because, as this report shows, shifts in marriage and family structure are important factors in states’ economic performance, including their economic growth, economic mobility, child poverty, and median family income...

Higher levels of marriage, and especially higher levels of married-parent families, are strongly associated with more economic growth, more economic mobility, less child poverty, and higher median family income at the state level in the United States...

**********

June 6 1944
This must be D day. All through the night planes roared overhead. Wave after wave. Got up at 6am and went to chow. It is the most perfect day I have yet seen. Planes of every type and description still flying back and forth.

This has all the makings of a very exciting day. I’m hoping for my 2nd mission and a glimpse of what the invasion looks like.
