Comment: Fiat financial power = imposed idolatry

(See in situ)


Fiat financial power = imposed idolatry

The system we are dealing with has assumed and usurped the Just Powers of the People simply because we, and a few generations before us, appear to have waived and abandoned our God-given rights, one of which is to determine the value of our time to worship God according to the dictates of our conscience; and to know how that applies to ourselves, our families, neighborhoods, towns, counties, states, nations, and world; past, present, AND future!

Idolatrous systems of faith and finance have risen and fallen when some novel ideal is set up with an image, a priest class, and laws that demand obedience or penalty. Novelty becomes normalcy, as the early demands seem tolerable enough. Then, as their corruption of power increases without equal or greater constraint from us; it becomes more obvious that our worship, the power determine the quality of our lives, and the power to put to us to death, are no less than their obvious goals.

COVETOUSNESS, n.

1. A strong or inordinate desire of obtaining and possessing some supposed good; usually in a bad sense, and applied to an inordinate desire of wealth or avarice.

Out of the heart proceedeth covetousness. Mark 7.

Mortify your members--and covetousness which is idolatry. Colossians 3.

Noah Webster 1828

Find out just what any people will quietly submit to and you have the exact measure of the injustice and wrong which will be imposed on them. - Frederick Douglass
