Socialism vs Communism vs Liberty (Republican Democracy)



"ADOLF HITLER’S POLITICAL PHILOSOPHY [National Socialism] HAS BEEN SUMMED up to say: 'Society’s needs come before the individual’s needs.' History, of course, tells us how that way of thinking worked out..." (1)

"Communism stresses the importance of the political party over the person. In fact, under Joseph Stalin’s collectivization efforts in the Soviet Union during the early 1900s, peasant farmers were forced, for the benefit of the state, to give up their land and animals in order to become part of collective farms.

Justice: Law is King - Lex Rex



All, whether king, president, rich, poor, famous, or commoner are accountable to the law.

When Jesus said “Render unto Caesar the things that are Caesar’s, and to God the things that are God’s,” He was making clear that the civil government has limitations. The State is not the “be all and end all.” It cannot declare just anything to be its own. They cannot make up law as they go, nor change the immutable laws of God.

00 Washington's Cruisers and the Pine Tree Flag

"The Washington Cruisers Flag was flown from seven ships outfitted by George Washington personally to aid in his attempt to drive the British from New England. These ships were sailing before the Continental Navy was formed by Congress in late 1775, making them the de facto first Navy of the United States. The idea to use this flag apparently came from Colonel Joseph Reed, an aide to General Washington." (1)

October 31 - Reformation Day



Be a light of the Grace and Truth of Jesus Christ in the darkness!

[Jesus] also said to them, “Is a lamp brought in to be put under a basket or under a bed? Isn’t it to be put on a lampstand? For nothing is concealed except to be revealed, and nothing hidden except to come to light. If anyone has ears to hear, he should listen!”
(Mark 4:21-29)

Scripture is the source of truth, not traditions of men.

"Constitution signer John Dickinson, like many of the others in his day, defined an inalienable right as a right 'which God gave to you and which no inferior power has a right to take away.'

Our Family’s Safety and Security
[excerpted from The Dobra Family Mission 2010 Revision]

Our King, Jesus, warns us that until His return we live in a cursed world and that we will have to face disaster.

You will hear of wars and rumors of wars, but see to it that you are not alarmed. Such things must happen, but the end is still to come. Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in various places.
Matthew 24:6-7

New Life: Ephesians 4:17-24

The truth is in Jesus. (4:21)

Take off deceitful desires. (4:22)

Put on righteousness and purity of truth. (4:24)
