Cedar Lake Indiana – The Systems of Economics in countries change constantly.
In the 1930s if a man with a bar of gold in his pocket and a man with a bottle of liquor under his arm walked down the street together, the one with the liquor was a criminal and the one with the bar of gold was a good citizen.
In the 1970s if a man with a bar of gold in his pocket and a man with a bottle of liquor under his arm walked down the street together, the one with the gold was a criminal and the one with the bottle of liquor was a good citizen.
At one time one thing may be outlawed, at another time something else. In Europe, in some countries it is against the law to name your child Smelly Head, in America it is against the law to sell raw milk to you neighbors.
Today anyone arguing seriously for legalization polygamy would be laughed at, while “gay rights” is on the march. At one time there was fear that polygamy, through the push of activists, might become a legal institution. That is gone now, the battle is over.
Stopping the political trains that are rolling onward seems impossible. So did something like the United Nations at one time. We were once told man would never get off the ground in “flying machines.”
Ending things like the Federal Reserve can happen if men and women are willing to fight for it. Change really can happen, it has in the past. We are all the products of some revolution.
Monoliths can be brought down. It happens slowly, and that is how all large revolutions happen, through slow work by dedicated minorities.
Say we want change will do us no good unless we know what change we want. Progress is not useful unless we know what we are progressing towards. And the reformation cannot only be in government.
Government is the last symptom to change once the disease permeates the rest of the national body. People, communities must be reached with the Gospel of Christ, which is a part of the Great Commission. All things brought under subjection to Him.
Through His Strength We Will Conquer,
